Product Information

Utility Grade Infrastructure, also known as UTG, is a technology platform, assurance program and design approach that redefines the infrastructure layer to support building subsystems, technologies and applications. 

The Utility Grade Infrastructure platform has been co-developed alongside word-class global technology partners who have defined and manufactured critical UTG components necessary to form a best in class Utility Grade Infrastructure. 
 
Independent third-party tested and verified by UL, the UTG program will offer UTG-rated cabling solutions built to support your specific application, performance and lifecycle needs.
